narrative is clear secondly that that was a line from the norm and was unquestionably respond sort of beit jala this attack was not a game this the kingdom of the article also get a beata. it was an arsehole. community. but the defense ministry briefing in riyadh also left many questions for the foreign media where exactly were the attacks launched from and how did saudi arabia's sophisticated air defense system not spot the missiles leaving critical infrastructure unguarded some defense analysts were skeptical the attacks were launched from iran the satellite images appear to show that some of the strikes came from the northwest this becomes an increasingly more likely scenario that most of these flying devices were being launched from the area area between. iraq and iran were i don't think is
6:03 pm
likely is that the iranians were launching a from their own. and using always in their own devices is there is something that can be traced. and investigation will eventually show where or where the launch was moments after the saudi briefing the rebels held a news conference of their own in sanaa dismissing the saudi version of events claiming responsibility for the strikes the hooty spokesman stressed that the damage from the attack was extensive and gave this warning to saudi arabia's close ally the u.a.e. . saudi arabia and the united arab emirates will regret this if our leadership issues orders to the armed forces to launch an attack in the coming days or months on the u.a.e. they will seriously regret this we have tens of targets within the pie in abu dhabi that can be hit at any time. to who say they've developed new weapons that can now reach targets far beyond their borders they're calling on the saudi led coalition

6:07 pm
in afghanistan and. government forces with us and support has killed at least 20 people in the. early at least 18 people were killed and 96 injured in a taliban suicide attack in southern. israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu has called on his main rival centrist to join him in a unity coalition. he said there's no chance he could form a right wing government following the 2nd election this year. and saudi arabia has presented evidence that it says proves that. it is sponsored by iran the drone strike which. has been claimed by yemen's rebels. now the u.k. supreme court is beginning its final day of hearings to determine whether boris johnson suspension of parliament was legal government lawyers say it's a political issue and not for the courts to decide opponents told judges the suspension is meant to impede parliament's ability to scrutinize johnson's briggs plans the court will hear from former british prime minister john major on thursday
6:08 pm
let's cross over now to charlie and he joins us live from outside the court it's the 3rd and final day of this is story hearing what can we expect today. the judges will be hearing. representing. their argument the prime minister to the queen about the real intention. 5 weeks and. also joined. by former conservative prime minister john major. he is expected to say again through a. agents and that his justification this is spending parliament doesn't ring true now john may just suspend the parliament in 1907 when he was prime minister better than anyone here he understands those
6:09 pm
written rules and conventions that surrounds this very delicate procedure so he's expected to add a lot of weight to the argument for the prime minister but the other side also have a strong case lawyers acting for the prime minister say that this is not an issue for the courts they have no jurisdiction here it's a parliamentary matter there are all no written rules that surround the reasons why you can suspend parliament or how long you can suspend parliament so they say how can judges decide what the prime minister did was legal or not and when we can expect him to just say that because of the of course it's of the case they're expecting to get that preliminary thoughts hopefully by the end of today and surely the talk is to keep going to see things that some e.u. leaders are already getting impatient so what can you tell us quickly about talk of a new deadline a briggs plan. yes with the finnish prime minister and the french president came out yesterday saying that unless boris johnson puts
6:10 pm
a new proposal for his brakes on the table by the end of september then it's over it's not clear what they mean by over whether any of the e.u. leaders will join in this threat considering any yesterday the e.u. agreed to allow an extension to the october 31st deadline if the u.k. os threat but it does say the growing impatience in brussels with boris johnson a man who says he wants an alternative to the irish back stop that's the insurance policy to stop the hard border in ireland but he's yet to put any realistic alternative on the table and i think that how you take it by suggesting an even earlier deadline they have finally put something down that they can discuss. thank you. canada's prime minister has apologized after a photo emerged of him wearing brown face makeup the picture which dates back to 2001 was published in a school yearbook while justin trudeau worked as a teacher was taken at the schools on your dinner which had an arabian nights theme

6:12 pm
one when he faces here is something that suggests he's not who he says he is he's been very politically correct leader who is a master of. political correctness and of shifting diversity and you know and also suggesting that hones are racists so this this instance where he talked about. this dismissed this must unfortunate conduct this wasn't something that happened when he was a child or when he was a teenager or when he was in college this is when he was 29 years old so he's got it's a bit of a challenge to his brand and voters who are undecided and there are a lot of undecided voters in the selection are he's going to have to convince them this is just a blip in his past that is known to give him more widespread sort of hypocrisy on his part 3 top executives in the japanese firm that operated the focus shima nuclear plant have been cleared of responsibility for the 2011 disaster the plant was crippled by a magnitude 9 earthquake off the northeast coast of japan and the tsunami that

6:51 pm
hospital which is pretty much been devastated by this blast this was a suicide truck bomb it was a large one a large part of the center of collapses is really now just rubble a part of the problem for the people dealing with this is they have schools of injured that you would normally take to the provincial hospital which is the very hospital which has been devastated so many. ferries ferrying the victims have been carried out by a number of ambulances to neighboring kandahar a drive of some hour and a half and kandahar hospitals have been dealing with many of the injured many people there arriving in a bad way fish really 18 people have died and some 96 are injured but i think as the day goes on we will see the death toll rise and this comes as details are emerging about this 2nd incident you mentioned this is in a province the province neighboring with pakistan and this is very much disputed
6:52 pm
about exactly what has taken place that the provincial governor's office says that an airstrike a drone print a drone attack or was targeting an islamic state hideout that is close to the tora bora region which we know is a stronghold for many groups of fighters here in afghanistan they said that 20. the eisel fighters have been killed and now other sources their government officials and also the local provincial council say that actually the people who were killed were harvesting in a field close to this hideout they were largely civilians who have been brought. in from neighboring provinces for a harvest of pine nuts and that 30 people have been killed civilians with a further 40 injured it is difficult to ascertain exactly what the truth of it is it may well emerge in the coming hours probably it will be somewhere between the 2 there were probably was a targeted action against a nice old hideout maybe some myself fighters were killed but once again it does
6:53 pm
seem as though a number of civilians were caught up in this summary as always seems to be the case that thanks so much from mcbride. israel's prime minister binyamin netanyahu has called on his main rival benny gantz to join him in the unity coalition birds after he said there's no chance he could form a right wing government after the 2nd election this year with more than 97 percent of votes counted the center right blue and white party led by benny gantz has 33. prime minister binyamin netanyahu is likud party is behind with 31. during campaigning i called for creating a right wing government but unfortunately the results of the election showed that will not be possible the people did not fully decide between the 2 blocs now i call
6:54 pm
on you many gantz we have to create a wide based unity government today the people expect from us from both of us to be responsible to cooperate that's why i'm calling on you binney let's meet today any time to ignite this move or even israel's president through been rivlin has welcomed that whose call for a broad coalition with dance about the honey joins us now from west jerusalem so i guess the big question is what is gan saying to all of this. well we should hear shortly from benny gantz he's due to give a press conference within the hour but let's just remember that during his campaign one of his main mantras was really that it was you know that he was anti corruption that israel should not have a political leader who is facing corruption charges and that's going to be very difficult for him if in case he accepts a national unity government it would be letting down those who voted for the blue
6:55 pm
and white party but it is. you know promises made during a campaign are not necessarily hold on after the results of an election so we'll just have to wait and see what he has to say about this and. with charges looming right now it's more than the political life that's at stake right. yeah there is there's a lot more of benjamin netanyahu than just you know do his likud order right wing bloc which he now represents after he had negotiations with all the right wing parties here. it's also about his legacy it's about his future it's about these corruption charges he is facing this is a hearing that is scheduled for early october and that would fall right in the middle of the negotiations to form
6:56 pm
a government those should be starting sometime next week so certainly a lot as they hear from benjamin netanyahu but he's also a very shrewd politician and he has been in overdrive ever since those exit polls came out just after a few hours after the polling stations were closed so now you have him and he is secured the backing of the right wing parties he has the backing of his likud party now he is representing more than 50 seats and he is a yes he did the whole of avigdor lieberman who said that he just said he would only support a national unity government that included likud. and his own. party he has also another advantage that would could convince of endure lieberman here is that both of them. on liber man are against
6:57 pm
any role of the arab joy at least in a government actually avigdor lieberman said famously once that did not even in the parallel universe would allow that so that leaves benny gantz in a more difficult situation but this is just the beginning the president really hasn't cost anyone at this stage to form a government they'll be a lot of back door dealings and secret meetings and i think it's going to take a while really before this situation is sorted. thanks so much me there are plenty more still ahead on the news hour including not responsible for a nuclear disaster top executives are clear were fukushima. battling to save somalia thousands of soofi fighters are joining the national army to take on a. special delivery to cyclists completing 820000 kilometer journey to
6:58 pm
the rugby world cup for a whole be here with those details coming up. now team of military experts has been sent from france to investigate attacks on saudi arabia's oil facilities that's come after saudi presented what it called undeniable evidence iran was behind the incident at a news conference the saudi defense spokesman displayed debris allegedly from the strikes total of $25.00 drones and missiles were said to have been launched at the 2 oil plants the rebels of claim the attacks and say the saudis evidence has been faked us secretary of state mike pompei o is in the middle east for talks he called the attacks an act of war by teheran he says the u.s. will support riyadh's right to defend itself president donald trump has ordered additional sanctions on iran which he called substantial iran's foreign minister
6:59 pm
denies any involvement he says the gammons houthi rebels have given evidence proving they were to blame meanwhile the united nations has sent a team of experts to saudi arabia to investigate the attacks is alex go topless with more on what saudi arabia said about the attack fragments of drones and cruise missiles this was the evidence the saudi said that iran was behind saturday's attack on the around facilities. despite your own effort to make it of their collaboration with their proxies in the region to create this false narrative is clear secondly. there was a rush from the war and was unquestionably sponsored by you on this i
7:00 pm
thought. was not a game as between them of soviet soviet arkell also get it yeah it was an asshole to the international community but the defense ministry briefing in riyadh also left many questions for the foreign media camp where exactly with the attacks launched from and how did saudi arabia sophisticated air defense system not spot the missiles leaving critical infrastructure unguarded but some defense analysts were skeptical the attacks were launched from iran the satellite images appear to show that some of the strikes came from the northwest this becomes an increasingly more likely scenario that most of these flying devices were actually launched from the area area between. iraq and iran were i don't think is likely is that the iranians were launching an from their own territory and using always in their own devices because there is something that can be traced and i think their investigation will eventually show where or where the launch point was moot.
